More than 200 guests attended the luncheon held at the Heathman Lodge. Although attendance was higher than last year’s event, donations were down.
Steve Rusk, business administrator for the Salvation Army in Clark County, said that the organization expects to receive more donations in the coming days from those who attended. Rusk says the organization uses the money for its programs, which provide housing and food to Clark County people in need.
